Forum: sflan Subject: Any idea how far out of richmond this goes now?

I am in north-west berkeley near gilman, and I was curious if there is enough reach to get the Roof2Roof service out here.

Im technical enough to set it up with a Tier3 receiver, maybe T2 later one (but Im in a not so tall house, so probably not). And I don't want to invest in the hardware if I cant receive signal.

Is there at least a cheap way to test? I am technically about 5 miles from the Internet Archive main antenna and might be able to get a direct Line of Sight.

That is unlikely to work at this time. Line of sight to Gilman is blocked by the Albany hill. But please e-mail us your street address to info at archive dot org. We'll notify you when we can reach that area.

Hi,
I am in Point Richmond and saw a possible WiFi signal, too weak though, so I'd like to determine whether an antenna will help.
Also, I'd like to help with the archive.

Hi Marilyn - I enjoyed mtg with you in Pt. Richmond; I hope your move here goes well and you settle in comfortably. Would you like to carpool to Archive for the staff/volunteer/visitor lunch on a Friday sometime (like the 13th)? I think you have my personal email/phone but here it is again. We can explore getting you connected with the free wifi then or I will explore your options with the experts as I can find time (and experts!) to do so.

Ah yes I am just about at Washington elementary school near Canal St off 580 freeway.
Thanks,
Marilyn

I actually think that the hill does not affect my particular position:

I also sent an email with this link to info@archive.org asking something similar and about certain setup details like bands and frequencies and channel widths.
